Puppy is cute. You want to cuddle it, look at it and it makes you happy.
Attractive is something that you are drwan towards. (I have all negative examples in mind like drugs and etc, but it does not have to be negative).
Girl that is obviously hard inside and/or unapproachable can be attractive. Men tend to want to hit that. Doesn't have to any cute.
Girl that is gentle and nice person and and is nice is cute. Doesn't have to be attractive.
Both can be beautifun in their own way.
If something is cute, you probably want to be near that, just look and it fill you with good feelings. Feels good. Makes happy.
fd something is attractive you want to do something with it. Music -> you want to listen to it. Drugs -> you want to take them. Girls -> men want to have sex with them.
If a girl is only cute and not attractive, men will like to be with her talk and stuff and never have sex with her. (if she is ONLY cute and not at all attractive. She still can be both so I am not saying that cute girls are not attractive)
If a girl is only attractive men tend to sleep with her and leave before she wakes up in the morning. They don't want to spend time with her. (Again this apply if she is only attractive and not cute at all)
I explained evry way I could imagine right now ...
For what it's worth, I don't remember ever calling a girl attractive. Usually it's hot or cute. Hot means I want to take her home, bang her like a screen door in a hurricane, and then go out with my buddies for a beer. Cute means I want to take her home, kiss her from head to toe, give her the best orgasm of her life, wake up with her the next morning, and then introduce her to my mother as my new girlfriend. Then, hopefully repeat the first four steps for the next 50 or so years.
Oh I know what you mean! Well as for me cute is kind of a sweet side+personality and attractive is more about being pretty,appearance,standard.However,it's just my opinion and I think it depends from everyone interpretation!
